-- >> stephanie: these two guys, whatever their names are they said despite sweeping changes to medicare and medicaid, paul ryan's budget didn't make deep enough cuts to entitlement. those guys. yeah, that wasn't quite mean enough. [ applause ] >> i would be surprised if boehner kept his leadership position in the next congress. >> stephanie: really? >> yeah. because he's not -- >> stephanie: i picture eric cantor rubbing his hands together like snidely whiplash. >> he can't keep the caucus together. the republicans are famous for staying together. he can't keep them together. >> flabbergasted! >> that's doing a bad job. >> stephanie: he's flabbergasted at his own caucus.

on wall street, destruction of medicare and medicaid. there are real issues here. having been a governor, i know that trade-offs are tough. things everyday exploding around the world that leave no shortage for exciting conversations. i want our viewer to understand why things have happened. at the end of the show, you know what has happened, why its happened and more importantly, what's going to happen tomorrow. >> cenk: we've the latest in the grand bargain negotiations. democrats gave they are first offer, republicans theirs. their both largely nonsense. we know they're going to meet somewhere in the middle but it has to play out. we're told nbc is a liberal network. interesting. andrea mitchell asked questions that are completely loaded in favor of cutting social security and medicare, which is not remotely liberal. she almost tries to browbeat. watch. >> are you willing to work with the president to go against aarp to bring house departments along for cuts with the most popular programs? >> the savings that we know we can continue to add on that we achieved in the affordable care act

. they would cut medicare. they would cut $600 -- medicare meaning they would raise the age eligibility from 65 to 67. they would cut $600 billion in unspecified cuts. they'll cut spending. they don't tell us where. but it's not defense spending. those are social programs. they would cut another $800 billion or raise $800 billion in revenues they say by closing loopholes and getting rid of deductions. but again they don't tell where. what loopholes they would close. is it the mortgage interest deduction? we don't know. they do not specify. so again it is a lot -- it is filled with vague promises but here's the big difference. notice what is not included and what they say they will not do. they will not raise tax rates. they will not raise taxes on the top wealthiest 2% of americans. they say no way. no how will that be included. they're dead wrong. they're wasting time. when i saw that proposal yesterday, to coin a word, you know what my reaction was? i was flabbergasted! oh, my god. i was flabbergasted. >> thank you

security and medicare self-funded programs, the democrats are the ones that are the protectors of that. republicans know the only way to get it modified or changed is to have a democratic president begin that process. any time they've ever started with any of their clowns, it has been a disasterrer. they have to start the process. number two is they whine and cry about the deficit. basic civics 101. the president spends no money. the congress approves everything. they're the ones that created it. >> bill: sure. they're the ones who brought us to the fiscal cliff as we were talking yesterday because their super committee failed to do its job and now we have the sequestration hanging over our heads. >> they constantly create a situation, try to blame obama. >> bill: kevin, do you think we dare say look, hold the line and if you don't raise rates on the top 2%, we're not going to make a deal? >> absolutely. hold the line. i'll gladly pay more taxes than to have some rich son of a bitch pay more. >> bill: you and m
